OSCEOLA, Iowa (AP) - The Clarke County prosecutor has again been arrested.

Television station KCCI says outgoing Clark County Attorney Michelle Rivera was arrested Friday on suspicion of operating while intoxicated.

Rivera, who lost her re-election bid in November, was arrested in October on suspicion of being drunk on the job in a Clark County courtroom. A sheriff’s deputy said in a criminal complaint that he noticed Rivera “slurring her words and stumbling on her feet” in the Osceola courtroom. He arrested her after she refused to take a breath test. She was charged with public intoxication.

She later apologized and asked voters to give her another chance.

Rivera’s office was closed Saturday and was not accepting messages. A home phone number for Rivera could not be found.
